“Never has an actor dominated a        
stage or captivated an audience as
did Nayyar in this scene. He played
the role with the beautiful irony of a
man who knows all the secrets
about everyone, who is in perfect
control of every situation, and who
knows he will be dismissed by
people who don't realize his power.

Watching Nayyar weave and                
maneuver around George Doerksen,
who played Daniel Webster, was like
watching a cobra with his head up
and hood flared amuse himself with
a baby chick before he finally strikes
and devours it.”
The Technician, April 26, 1972.

Harsh Nayyar joined the original      
British cast of the play                         
"Guantanamo: Honor Bound to         
Defend Freedom" in the foyer of       
the Sam Rayburn Building at the      
U.S House of Representatives in     
Washington, DC, on 6th April 2006,
for a reading of the play.

The scene from "Hidalgo" was         
shot in the desert in Morocco.           
During the Audience Testing that     
preceded the release of the film,      
the Test Audiences consistently       
voted Harsh the number four             
audience favorite, after the horse,    
Viggo Mortensen and Omar Sharif.

"Brick Lane" is based on the novel   
by Monica Ali about Bangladeshi      
immigrants in London. It was shot   
in London during the hottest              
summer on record. A local news      
paper printed a picture of a cab        
driver frying eggs on the black           
hood of his taxi.

"The Fifth Patient" was shot in           
Xalapa, Mexico.

The scene from "The                           
Peacemaker," starring Nicole           
Kidman and George Clooney,           
was shot in Macedonia. It was the   
first film George Clooney made        
after he left "ER," and the first            
production of the newly formed         
company, Dreamworks SKG.

"The Littlest Victims," is based on    
the true story of Dr. James                 
Oleske, who discovered AIDS in       
children. It was the first film shot      
with High Definition TV cameras.

"Vestige of Honor" is about the         
Montagnards, who fought along       
with American soldiers in Vietnam   
and were abandoned by the U.S      
when Saigon fell. It is the true           
story of how one man's (Donald       
Scott) efforts led to special                 
legislation being passed by the        
U.S Congress, which allowed           
about two hundred Montagnards      
to come to the U.S to live.

The Montagnards got their name     
from the French, because they          
lived in the mountains of Vietnam.   
They are not ethnically                        
Vietnamese. They came in boats     
up the rivers of Vietnam a                   
thousand years ago from the            
islands of Java and Sumatra. At       
that time, these regions had              
extensive contacts with India.

The assassination scene from         
"Gandhi" was shot in New Delhi,      
India, at Birla House, just a few        
feet from the spot where Mahatma   
Gandhi was actually killed. To           
prepare for the scene, and to get      
the details right, Harsh talked to       
the brother of Nathuram Godse,       
the assassin. Harsh also worked    
on the film in the Production side,    
first as the liaison to the British         
Production Manager, Alex De            
Grunwald, and later, as an                 
Assistant Director, entrusted by        
Richard Attenborough to organize    
the Funeral scene, which has the    
distinction of having the biggest       
cast ever assembled for a film.         
The scene was shot in one day,       
on the 33rd anniversary of that          


Harsh is a graduate of the Indian     
Institute of Technology (I.I.T,)             
Kharagpur, India, from where he      
received a Bachelor's degree            
(B.Tech. - First Class Honours) in    
Mechanical Engineering. He did       
graduate work and received a           
Master of Science degree (MS) in     
Mechanical Engineering from the     
North Carolina State University
(NCSU,) Raleigh, NC.

During President Eisenhower's        
1959 visit to India, Harsh was           
invited by President Eisenhower      
to tea, where the President                
presented him with a signed             
photograph of himself.

During Martin Luther King's 1959     
visit to India, Harsh attended tea      
at his uncle's home, where                
Coretta and Martin Luther King         
were the only guests.
